It all assumes that Regeneron executes their rollout effectively. Remember how Immunex botched their rollout of Enbrel? That's why they came to be acquired by Amgen. Also, it allowed Humira to be approved sooner and grow faster. Not saying that that's what will happen but if REGN is slow on the output and AMGN is a model of efficiency, the month may not make any difference.
R&D has an exemption from patent infringement. That includes clinical trials. A company is only infringing if they are selling another company's patent protected item while the patent is still in force. No money is made during development.
Go back to learning about stock splits. And, no, stock splits do not dilute a stock because the overall equity on the balance sheet doesn't change. LOL
You jinxed it by posting that you that you thought that the share price should be $160 soon. Karma pay back!
Amgen is not going to be making generics of their own stuff, they will be making generics of other companies' stuff. Think Humira, Rituxan, Herceptin.
To summarize, the share exchange in an inversion will be taxed as capital gains. If the company's executives and directors have tax, the company will probably pay the tax for the poor babies.
AbbVie will probably pay for any taxes incurred by their executives and board. So in essence, the other shareholders will pay.
You don't seem to understand the situation about how LT capital gains normally works. Also, your suggestion about taking gains in Ireland so as not to have US tax is illegal. You have no credibility.
Some of the restructuring is undoing the mistakes of previous management. Managers were in place that had built their own fiefdoms which have become irrelevant. Others are continuation of the move to contract out functions which had previously been done in house.
You are wrong again. Medicare premiums are based on how much you earn in the previous year. If someone holding stock and getting modest dividends then gets a big unnecessary taxable capital gain because the company execs reincorporate the company overseas and issue new shares, then, yes, their medicare premiums could very possibly go up the next year.
You make no sense. The shareholders are the owners of the company, the capitalists. You may claim Abbvie is educating the govt but they are also betraying their shareholders by shifting a giant tax burden onto them. The cost savings on taxes will just be used to line the pockets of executives and their bankers.
